Proverbs 11:2 - When pride comes, then comes dishonor

NIV When pride comes, then comes disgrace,
but with humility comes wisdom.
KJV When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
NASBWhen pride comes, then comes dishonor,
But with the humble is wisdom.

Proverbs 11:2


Self-centered pride brings disgrace to the person and dishonor to God. This theme is common in Proverbs. In contrast, the wise display humility. To be humble is to be submissive to God and to the authorities He places in your life (see Mic. 6:8).

"the humble" - A rare word, which appears in Mic. 6:8: "walk humbly with your God." This humble and teachable spirit is first of all directed toward God (cf. 15:33; 16:18, 19; 18:12; 22:4).
